The best part of an urban legend is that it doesn’t matter how ridiculous it is, it still gets under your skin. Does it make logical sense that saying a phrase three times into a mirror would conjure a ghost child? Of course it doesn’t. Will you wake up in a bathtub full of ice with your kidneys missing? They wouldn’t leave you alive! It there actually something under your bed? Nope. It’s moved behind you.
This episode we discuss the the dos and don’ts of self medication, the true dangers of indoor fans and we look at the birth of a modern urban legend about vampires. We also have a public service announcement: please put away your Halloween decorations in a timely fashion. So many of them are actual corpses. Also, please put away your corpses.
Enjoy the episode! But first, maybe check the backseat of your car…
No one likes being hassled. Unwanted touch or conversation can be annoying at best (a co-worker sharing an update of their hysterectomy scars while you wash your mug in the breakroom), or downright nightmarish (realizing the dude sitting behind you on the bus has been blowing air gently onto the back of your neck for the last fifteen minutes). It seems impossible, but ghosts and cryptids have even less respect for your personal space than bus creepers.
This week we share a variety of stories about unwanted paranormal touch, tales of ghosts, demons and boy scouts getting all up in your biz.
We hope you enjoy it and we hope it inspires you to set clear inter-dimensional boundaries.
Paranormal reality shows are the perfect trash television. Nothing soothes a hangover better than watching dum dums in night vision, screaming and running from “ghosts.”
The issue with our favorite ghost hunting shows is how prolific they are. Ghost Hunters has filmed over 200 episodes and has at least three spin off shows. Ghost Adventures has had 23 seasons and Destination Truth, despite not being very popular, still had 5 seasons.
You can trust us on this: the majority of these episodes are bad. Easily 75%-85% are real wet farts.
We have handpicked the best and scariest episodes from these shows to curate a ghost show mixtape for you. This mixtape includes the following hot tracks:
We here at Peripheral decided we could all use a drink. There’s an uncontrolled trash fire sweeping across America, so now’s a good time to duck into a dank bar and hide out.
This week we chat about the the darkest, creepiest, most haunted bars we could find. These stories will contain bludgeonings, stabbings, bodies buried under floorboards, torture and suicides. Don’t worry though. Even with all those horrors, these bars are still safer than what’s going on outside right now.
Join us! Let’s get sauced and scared together.
“What you gonna do when your racism runs wild, BROTHER!?”
Oh boy, that was certainly a holiday, wasn’t it? The whole Peripheral team got SLAMMED by nightmarish Christmas and New Years obligations, but we are back! This week we’re releasing our holiday episode. Did we hold off on releasing it because it is really disturbing and we didn’t want to destroy your holiday with terror? Kind of.
Well, almost certainly.
Out topics are almost exclusively about entire families being murdered. Don’t worry, we handle it with the reverence and class that we here at Peripheral are known for.
